"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

To make any changes to the OWA 2010 timeout (public or private), it is a registry edit on the CAS server. If you have more than one CAS, the change has to be made on all CAS servers.

Launch registry edit and navigate to the following location. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesMSExchange OWA

Change the DWORD “PublicTimeout” / “PrivateTimeout” and put the required value in minutes. If the DWORD doesn’t exist, create them. My example shows the timeout value to be 480 (minutes), which is 8 hours.

The time-out period of an OWA session depends on whether a user selects the This is a public or shared computer option or the This is a private computer option when the user logs on to OWA.

By default, the time-out values are set in Microsoft Exchange as follows:

Option                                                                         Time-out value
This is a public or shared computer                       The OWA session ends, and the user is automatically logged off after 15 minutes of inactivity.
This is a private computer                                        The OWA session ends, and the user is automatically logged off after 8 hours of inactivity.

HI All,

I am not asking that how to change the duration of timeouts. I am looking for the answer how to view the default timeout settings.
If you do not have the registry entries below then your defaults are still on place

By default the Public timeout is 15 minutes where as the Private timeout is of 8 hours.

Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesMSExchange OWA
Create new DWORD named PrivateTimeout
Create new DWORD named PublicTimeout
